THE MENDING OF BOREDOM WOULD BE RATHER DIFFICULT WITHOUT THE MIDWIFE’S HANDS

in the fog
a mild romance
with a precise set of methods
stands at attention and flips a coin

yesterday’s archive; independent numbers
suffering from naiveté and tweeness
with time to waste
a perpetual performance of adolescent pride

stacked time stands to fall
like vertical script
for the nonspecialist reader
wasted glances; branch overhead
looking as dante in reverse

Words by Jacob Whibley + Alex Bowron

Jacob Robert Whibley is a Toronto based artist focusing on the information and experiences embedded within objects and forms by way of intuitively blending histories, architectures and ambiguous temporalities into formal compositions and structures. Most recently he has shown at Material Art Fair (Mexico, 2015), Bourouina Gallery (Berlin, 2014), Narwhal Contemporary (Toronto, 2013), and Espace de l’art concret (France, 2012). His second solo show at Narwhal Contemporary will be in September 2015.
